Services:The services a beauty salon offers vary. It can be primarily a hair shop that offers a few other beauty services, or it may be a full-service salon offering everything from waxing to body wraps. It's important to determine exactly what you're looking for.
Location and Hours of Operation:Even if you are only looking for a simple treatment, it's important to have a location that's easily accessible to you. Since professional stylists recommend getting your hair cut at least every four weeks to keep hair healthy, you need a place convenient to your home or work. In the same vein, choose shops that are open hours to reasonably accommodate your schedule. The most reputable salon won't fit the bill if its hours of operation are limited and you can never get an appointment.
Pricing:Beauty salons range from casual affordable stores to upscale salons in a higher price range. There are many great salons available that you don't have to break the bank to visit. Alternately, some places run on budgets that are far too low to provide distinctive service. Make sure the staff is skilled and the products of professional quality.
Atmosphere:While a high price tag may translate into a luxurious atmosphere, a good beauty salon should at the minimum be clean and brightly lit. Finer details like soft music, elegantly framed mirrors and artwork can create an inviting ambience. Look for the atmosphere that is a comfortable fit for your personality. It may be a family-friendly team of stylists in a contemporary beauty shop, or it may be an upscale salon complete with wine service.
The atmosphere should make you feel at ease. While the staff plays a major role in this aspect of the experience. Soothing music and exquisite esthetics aren't quite as effective when the staff is abrasive or unprofessional.
Qualification and Training:For top beauty salons, you may want to ask whether the stylists and employees have attended any international beauty shows. Or whether they have been trained at acclaimed beauty schools. After all, if you're paying the price tag, you want to be sure you are getting top-quality service. Even for lower priced beauty salons, you should still consider the training and qualifications of those who will do your treatment. At a minimum, the staff should be licensed to practice according to the state requirements.
Licensure ensures that the staff members have been trained through an accredited beauty school or program. They are practice proper health, safety, and sanitation standards. And they have passed appropriate state board examinations.
Schooling only goes so far. A quality stylist should be masterful in catering to the customer. This requires using natural talents to create a stellar hairstyle that embraces the customer's vision tempered with reality.
